Yup. The first time I went to one you had to go around back and enter the basement door to the lower level. I thought "Oh, boy". But, it was always a great time.

The first Milwaukee swap I attended was in the basement of an old bowling alley. Every 48" light fixture had one bulb removed. The one above my table was burned out. LOL  I stuck with them and it's a lot better now.

I'm getting food made up fresh for the event. Fifteen pounds give or take so far today. I'll get an exact weight when I bag it up. Bug is not quite done. FRENZY Super-Max, Guppy Magic, and Egg Foo Young are ready to bag up. Got a few more varieties to bag up as well. I'll be ready.

Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound...and zip ties, properly applied, can reduce the movement!

We are back now.....what a horrible drive...both ways....rainy, very windy, foggy, dark and evil looking.........I'm tired...

..We did ok...sold out of bagged fish and most of the fish in the 'Tank'...would have had two tanks but 'yours truly' had one slip off the cart and smash to pieces... wfwf

......saw Frank & Mrs Plumber, Bob & Gale, Kasey, Elaine, and a few others ...a fun day....but we're pooped...

The drive was terrible with the wind and rain. Had a great time at the swap. Lots of loyal followers out there.
